Documentary series following life on the English Channel, the busiest waterway in the world. The RNLI team from Newhaven rush to the aid of a casualty having a suspected heart attack on board a charter fishing boat out at sea. Solo swimmer Nick Young battles tides and massive freighters in his attempt to swim to France. Nick's motivation is a cause close to his heart - he is hoping to raise money to help his 12-year-old niece, Bel, who was paralysed four years before after falling from a climbing frame. Plus a team of volunteers rush to rescue another of the channel's inhabitants - a baby seal washed up on the beach.
